Treatments for vulvar cancer
If you have vulvar cancer, your healthcare team will create a treatment plan just for you. It will be based on your health and specific information about the cancer. When deciding which treatments to offer for vulvar cancer, your healthcare team will consider:
- if the cancer has spread to any lymph nodes
- size and location of the tumour
- type of tumour
- your personal preferences and overall health
